      How to get sorted   10/05/2017

      To find the Sorting Form, click on the "Sort Me!" tab at the top of the page.    Before you go to fill out the form, make sure that you have a username that follows our rules. If you don't, your form will be rejected. You can change your name once yourself, by going to Account Settings -> Display Name. If you've already used your one change, you can request a name change in this topic. Be sure to read the first post in the topic carefully so we can get you updated without any back and forth.   Don't rush to answer the form! There's no prize for sending it in first. Please take your time and fill out the form thoughtfully, so the hat will have the information it needs to put your character in the right house.     Calendar: Sorting Form appears: Thursday, October 5th Sorting Form closes: Friday, November 3rd (No forms will be accepted after this date) The Sorting Ceremony closes: Sunday, November 5th, about 10am Central Time You find out your new house: Sunday, November 5th, 11 am Central Time First day of the new school year: Monday, November 6th   (For reference: Central Time Zone includes Chicago, Illinois)   How to get sorted:   1. Register with a name that follows our rules. The registration agreement explains the rules about names. You can also find them in the Rules.   2. Remember you may only send in one form total for this school year. If you send forms in from multiple accounts, we will not sort ANY of them. Then we have to feel bad about not sorting you. Don't make us feel bad, please.   3. Click on the Sort Me tab and fill out the sorting form as thoroughly as possible. The better we understand your character, the more likely we can put you in the right house. See "How to use the form" below if you're confused. For some in depth information on each house, please check out this topic on sorting. (Note: After you fill out the form, a copy will be PMed to you. Please save that because we delete them from our system after sorting.)   4. Wait for a PM from the Sorting Hat. Be patient, it could take a few days. If you don't receive a PM from the Sorting Hat within 4 or 5 days, contact one of the moderators.   5. If your form is: Accepted: Congratulations! You should now go post in the Sorting Ceremony topic in the New Member resources forum. This is very important. This post is where you'll go to find out what the Sorting Hat had to say about you. Don't skip this step! Rejected: Don't worry, you can still be sorted. Be sure to read the reasons for the rejection carefully, then edit your form (just click on the Get Sorted! link again) to fix the problem. Once you've done that, you can send the form in again. 6. That's it! Once you've gotten your acceptance letter AND posted in the Sorting Ceremony, you're all set. You'll find out where the Sorting Hat put you on Sorting day when you can check the Great Hall for the edited Sorting Ceremony.   How to use the form: The form is pretty straightforward and user friendly. Here are a couple tips: You don't need to fill the whole thing in at one sitting. You can finish one page at a time and save it. Then finish the rest later. Don't use your browser's Back or Forward buttons. Use the buttons in the form to Navigate.  If you don't fill out all the questions on a page, you can't save or move on. If you don't meet the word number requirements in the In Depth section, you can't submit the form. Use the "Check Word Count" buttons to see how many words you've used. If you fill in the wrong answers on the quiz page, you won't be able to submit the form. After you've submitted the form, you can't access it anymore. But if your form is rejected, you'll be able to see it again with your old answers still filled in. Still have questions? Ask here.    Note: Section I: Short Answer Please include a brief explanation with each answer. I'd like to remind you all to include an explanation with all the short answer questions. The answers to those questions aren't very useful for sorting unless you explain them.   Otherwise, we don't have enough information to sort you with. (Translation: we'll have to reject it.)     Many thanks as always to Arianna Wright for her hard work revising and updating the form and to Faraz Memon for initially coding it many years ago. <3

Ye dornt hit yer teammates

Abigail Grace Goodfellow liked to think that she was a good loser, that she could lose a game with grace. Unfortunately, she wasn't right. Abby Grace was absolutely the poutiest loser in the world. After the final whistle of the game, Abby had barely waited for the sound to stop echoing before flying off. "SLYTHERIN TO THE LAKE!" she shouted as she flew off grabbing a beater's bat on her way off the pitch.

 

Because this was now hers, dammit, and if she got her way, she'd never let it go. 

 

The lake was stocked with literally everything you could require for a lake party, including a stupidly large floatation device floating around, hoping nothing attacked it. It was meant to be a celebration of a successful season and Voldric's existence, but unfortunately, that wasn't totally true. Sure, they had a good year but they'd still lost the cup when it was so close within their grasp. Alas, it would just have to be made up for next year.

 

They could still celebrate Voldric's existence. There was lots of Voldric to celebrate. 

 

Abby made sure to pass out pints of butterbeer to everyone before clearing her throat to hold her glass up. "To our beloved captain, may he rest in peace," she toasted with a laugh, because everyone knew you were practically dead once you'd graduated. "You better come back and visit us when we kick arse next year." Because they totally would and could. She could feel it.

 

"Got anything to add, Captain Kirk?" Because old habits died hard and Abby didn't really care if he hated the nickname. 


ooc: idk why this is so long sorry not sorry??

"I flacking told you not to call me that," was his only contribution, grumbled into a pint of butterbeer that he pointedly did not raise to salute with the others.

"I knew you should have played me," she sighed as she followed the team to the lake, "I played both games we won.

Abby smacked Havana in the back of the head with the tail of her broom. Because she could. And she flew away so no one could blame her for it.

"I'll bench you until you graduate," Kirk threatened Havana calmly, not even bothering to look like he cared if he did so.

"Got anything to add, Captain Tightpants?!" Irene chimed in helpfully when he told Abby not to call him by his actual name, which was in fact Kirk - so like why did he suddenly not want to be called kirk?  Did he no longer identify as ... kirk? 

 

OMG HAD REID FINALLY CONVINCED HIM TO BECOME AN ACTUAL GIRL? That was cool... I mean Irene would be totally supportive except that she did not want to live in the same room with kirk..arina? She actually hated him.. her.. it.

Wait. Was he... captain tightpants? Kirk narrowed his eyes at Redgrave, wondering when he'd missed her getting hit in the head with a bludger during the game. He pointedly ignored her.

Viola was frowning - it was as of yet undetermined if she was frowning because Voldric was graduating, because they'd lost the cup, or because didn't anybody realize that she needed to do her homework if she wanted to have any chance at succeeding in her classes?!? 

 

She supposed it wasn't her problem if she was no longer eligible to play quidditch because she was attending the team lake party, right? Right. 

 

The third year huffed and settled for giving Havana a dirty look. Seriously, did the girl have no sense of team camaraderie? (Also who had chosen to cut the delightful Abi Slater and replace her with new teammates like this?? Maybe the captains weren't as clever as Viola had thought them to be ... )

Zara was here the whole time. Really she was Juan with the team. She was sunbathing by the lake sipping on an child friendly beverage and not paying attention to what was going on around her.
